After the run a buddy and I finished up our daily chest strength training.
I will get stronger & faster each and every day. Weymouth Woods watch out 'cause I'm on the comeback trail! Tomorrow will be a 3 mile run with the Tribe.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippans 4:13 KJV)

It’s Thursday and that means bone doctor follow day! So here is how it went down.
I took off work a little early and drove up to Cary but unfortunately I had to pull my big trailer with me. You see this Friday & Saturday we are embarking on an 2 day overnight 2 kayaking trip with some friends from church and I had to go and pick up these 16 ft long boats…anyhow back on topic. I had my trailer with me and in typical fashion I get turned around and eventually lost. Now I’m driving through downtown Cary with this big trailer, trying to call the dr’s office it was bad. UGH, I finally got in touch with them and got directions, it seems that I was only about 2 min. away. I checked in an soon enough I was back in the room waiting for the Doc.
He walks in asking how I was feeling and what I had been doing. Told him everything was great and felt fine, we talked about my steroid injection for a little bit and he seems to be on the same page as me. As long as I’m smart and I stretch & Ice that area the inflammation should not return. Then it was time to look at the bone scan.
To my amazement he said OH that looks good! I was a little confused but then he proceed to tell me that if it was a full stress fracture the “Hot Spot” would extend all the way across the bone and mine did not. Good news!! After a few min more of conversation we started talking about my running schedule. The doc prescribed me taking it easy for the next couple of weeks but I could start running again. Keep the mileage under 20 for the week for the next 2 weeks then I can start to edge it up. Also keep the intensity low and with that off I went. More to come on this after my 1st run!
